    Thanks. April is a good time for Tawang. Lesser chances of rain and also post Tawang you get to enjoy the snow.

    Thanks

    Thank you :)

    Yeah those yaks are really massive. Tapas bhai, I am planning to see the new route via Rowta to Kalaktang. And then maybe Sangti valley. Lets see when that happens

    Thanks

    Thank you

    Yes. Late April to be precise. Thanks

    Day 4 continued:

    We spent the rest of the day visiting some of the local areas of Tawang town. We visited the birth place of the 6th Dalai Lama. It is nestled in a very peaceful environment on the outskirts of the town. There is a big tree inside the premises which is believed to have healing powers. Locals take the fallen leaves and use it to cure various ailments-informed our driver for the day. We also took some of the fallen leaves.

    After lunch, we went to the Tawang war memorial. Names of soldiers who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty are inscribed here. Its a humbling feeling to be here.

    Some pictures:

    A Gr8 TL justified with Gr8 pics. Just for information can we get a taxi Ex-Tezpur Airport To & Fro for visit to Tawang for 5 days or so and an estimate cost of the same if you have any idea. Also can the return leg from Tawang to Tezpur be done in a day by road as it is around almost 300 kms. How is the mid Sept period to visit Tawang? would it be more rainy? Thanks.
